Re: Tryout announcements for Team New England’s
entry in the 2012 America's Showcase
(formerly the Chicago Showcase).
Below you will find tryout announcements for Team New England’s entry in the 2012
America’s Showcase (formerly the Chicago Showcase).
This will be the 16th year we place an entry in this prestigious tournament. The America’s Showcase will be held in Pittsburgh, PA. Since we have been going we have always proven to be one of the stronger teams by placing no lower than eighth place ever out of twenty-four teams!! We are the defending champions as NNE Gold won last year’s showcase. More importantly we have represented our region with true sportsmanship and a great deal of class.
.The determining factor to play for Team New England in the America Showcase is NOT residency, but the state in which the player competes. For example, we cannot bring a player from Manchester, NH who plays for Avon Old Farms (CT). Likewise, if a player is from outside the five listed states and plays for Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire he is eligible for Team New England.
Please note we do not put the players through an intense tryout, but rather ask them to display their skill level to the staff. We do not want one player getting hurt and will remind them of this before we begin the tryout.
The tryout for this year’s team will be as follows:
Date: Sunday, February 12, 2011
Time: 12pm- 2:20pm, please arrive no later than 11am
Location: Tri Town Ice Arena, Hooksett, NH

The America’s Showcase will be held April 10 – 15, 2012. All players must arrive in
Pittsburgh on April 10, 2012, details to follow if you are selected to the team. If you
have any questions feel free to call me anytime at (603) 270-1013. I hope you are all
enjoying the hockey season, and best of luck to all of you with the remainder of your
See you in the rinks,
GM / Head Coach
